There is very nearly enough Bro to fill a small podium. Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps continue to get mad love from rapper Lil Wayne. 

Phelps is resurgent in the pool, and Lochte, well, he looks like he is just having a really great time. 

Amidst all the hype, hoopla and celebration, there are a few tweets shared amongst some good friends, proving swagger lives in the pool. 

Once Michael Phelps passed gymnastics legend Larisa Latynina with 19 medals, Weezy decided to give some virtual props with this tweet.

Thanks bro!!! RT @liltunechi: High praises to my good friend Michael Phelps for becoming the greatest Olympian of all time.USA!!

Aw, how cute. There is so much adorable Bro getting passed around. Of course, many will remember that Lil Wayne recorded a dedication of sorts to Phelps a few years ago entitled "I'm a Go Getta."

Not to be outdone is the other superstar swimmer, Ryan Lochte. The man who would be comfortable in any frat across the nation loves his shiny grills and is a big fan of Lil Wayne. 

The two shared a Twitter moment after Lochte's gold-medal performance to start the games.

Much luv to Ryan Lochte and the USA swim team!!!!

Lochte replied in kind.

@liltunechi thanks man appreciate it. When I get back we gotta go skateboarding #Jeah

— Ryan Lochte (@ryanlochte) August 2, 2012

Awww! I want to go skateboarding. 

I imagine one blinged-out skateboarding session, and it simply needs to be recorded on video. 

The Olympics continue to bring BFFs from all over the world together, like a world sprinkled with special Bro dust. It's magical.
